International Coaching Week History
International Coaching Week (ICW) is a global celebration of the coaching profession held annually. During thisextended commemoration, coaches around the world offer a variety of activities and pro bono services in their local communities to share what coaching has the ability to do.

Reasons to work with a Coach
Deb Nystrom, Glenda Haskell, Heidi Weiss, Geri Markel, Deborah Campbell, Diana Wong
The International Coach Federation states that there are many reasons that an individual or a team might choose to work with a coach:
> There is something at stake - a challenge, new goal or opportunity, and it is urgent, compelling or exciting or all of the above;
> There is a gap in knowledge, skills, confidence, or resources;
> There is a desire to accelerate results;
> There is a lack of clarity, and
> There are choices to be made.
Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience: • fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, • enhanced thinking and decision-making skills, • enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and • increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.
